    so that's the standard? I don't think so. There are clear facts here. Including, the fact that they're going to be seeing adults on TV using the word "shit". Sure, they won't be scarred for life. But, the idea, in of itself, shouldn't be taken so lightly. First it was "pussy". Now this. Regardless, either way, it's something parents shouldn't have to be dealing with. We all know how kids are. They repeat everything they hear. Sometimes, even after being told not to. In fact, those are the things they're likely to repeat first in order to get attention. Or for any number of other reasons kids do things.

    I've found the exact opposite to be true in my personal experience as a parent. In fact, I've found when you try to explain real world events to them instead of sugarcoat everything that it plays right into the larger task of passing on to the next generation a strong sense of right and wrong.

    I'm mostly in agreement with whoever wrote this...

    Call out Trump as plainly as he speaks (opinion) - CNN

    Taiwan's Central News Agency referred to President Donald Trump as referring to "countries where birds don't lay eggs," China's news organizations followed its flagshipPeople's Daily lead by framing his words as "countries that suck." Iran's state news service and Japanese daily Sankei said Trump compared those nations to a "toilet hole."

    It's one thing for Trump's words to be obscured because of translation barriers. It's another for American media to euphemistically soften the President's repulsive term for the nations of Africa -- that is to say, countries with predominantly black populations: "Shithole[s]."

    (I'm proud that the great majority of CNN's anchors and correspondents -- including Jim Acosta, Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, Phil Mudd, Jake Tapper and Brian Stelter -- did not do so.)

    well, you got me there. I hadn't thought of that. It's a different era than when we grew up, isn't it? Kids have the internet and they are exposed to things we weren't. I know Joy Reid has kids. Her show was awesome this morning - btw. She says the word out loud. Even had a pastor on who said it. She had three ministers on her panel discussing it. Got me a little church. Perfect example of what you're talking about. Now that I think about it.
    Thanks from boontito
